Redemptorist Vocational School for People with Disabilities


It was a pleasant surprise when the students at the vocational school were informed that they would be having a morning off from study.

Instead of sitting in a classroom with their heads stuck in a book, they would be attending an arts and craft workshop.

Learning batik, the art of painting fabric, tie-dyeing and making flowers from paper were all popular activities.

But the most popular table, and where many students sat in silence, was a large selection of different designs and a pile of crayons.

Even though our students left their childhood and teenage years a long time ago, they all seem to love colouring with crayons.

Children the world over have grown up using colouring books, but if you are from a poor family, then finding enough food is more important than buying books and activities for the children.
